The HSUS Donates $1,000 to University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine to Help Georgia Shelter
The University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison, Wisconsin, has received an emergency grant of $1,000 from The Humane Society of the United States.
The grant will help cover costs associated with the university’s efforts to assist the Augusta County Animal Services in Augusta, Georgia, as the animal shelter responds to a disease outbreak. The partnership between the Georgia shelter and UW’s Shelter Medicine Program at the School of Veterinary Medicine, led by Dr. Sandra Newbury, has enabled staff to save lives through disease control and prevention efforts, including protocol development and transport of uninfected healthy animals to partner shelters.
Sharon Broady, director of Augusta County Animal Shelter, thanks community members, local agencies and the University of Wisconsin for their outpouring of support during a challenging time.
